Romans 12:1-2 New International Version – UK (NIVUK)
A living sacrifice
12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God – this is your true and proper worship. 2 Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – his good, pleasing and perfect will.
In this Christian version of the Ed Sheeran song ‘Perfect’ we hear how Christ died for us on the cross so that things can be perfect for us today if we accept him. the song also mentions how Jesus is there to support and guide us all the time
Not that I have already obtained it or have already become perfect, but I press on so that I may lay hold of that for which also I was laid hold of by Christ Jesus.
Most of you won’t know that I’m a bit of a perfectionist, but in no way am I claiming to be perfect in any way (I am human after all).
Here is an example of how bad I can be:
Yesterday whilst trying to change a few things about my blog site it was accidentally taken down. Having a bit of technical knowledge I attempted to get the site back up again myself. Eventually I contacted technical support for help and thanks to them the site is back up and running
Let us not remember whether we class ourselves as Perfectionist’s or not there is only one true perfectionist and that is Christ Jesus himself.
